A few countdowns:

8 days until I move.
6 days until I see Shane again.
3 days of work left.

I have so many emotions running through me. I'm excited, I'm sad, I'm scared... I've never lived outside of South Carolina before, so this is going to be scary no matter how excited I am. I'm really sad to leave my friends and family, but at the same time I'm really excited to never have to leave Shane again. It's going to be so nice to not have to deal with the pressures and inconveniences a long distance relationship brings. The longing, the not having... It sucks.

I have almost everything packed and I still feel like nothing's done. My buddy Josh packed my dishes for me today; let's face it: if I packed them they'd make it to Kansas broken. Today I don't feel like packing anymore. I feel like watching more Battlestar Galactica and geeking out at how similar the Cylons are to the Yeerks in Animorphs. Anyone else made that connection? The Aftran books especially made me feel that way. Yeerks are just misunderstood for the most part, wanting to live and see and better themselves. So are the Cylons. Well, some of them, but not all of the Yeerks are good either. I'm going to write a comparison up for my Boomer shrine, haha.

I don't think I'd ever have compared the Cylons to the Yeerks, really. The Yeerks weren't misunderstood so much as they were parasitic by nature, and had no symbiotic host to pair up with, and so they forced themselves on others in order to better their species. Cylons didn't need humans to survive (not until the humans got rid of resurrection at least), nor did they want to enslave every sentient species they came across.

I see the Cylons more like the Chee if they'd gone terribly awry, or even more like the Howlers, destroying things because they don't know any other way to live, until Jake and Cassie showed them what love was, at which point they changed. The Cylons that experienced/wanted love changed in a similar way. Howlers even had the whole shared memory thing that the Cylons have, at least between each cylon of a given model.

Anyways, yay, moving! :)

It's okay! Shane caught it before I got to it. I'm about to start 2.5.

Enjoy your move! It's the fear that makes the whole idea so exciting.
